Swedish Girls in Paris

Swedish Girls in Paris
Svenska flickor i Paris
The Flamboyant Sex
These frames are up here not so much as being about the movie but more as still shots. I bought this 35mm movie neg (1962) on 4 cores not really knowing what it was. I scanned in the film as I d not have a 35mm projector. I have not really sat and watched the film yet. I have do further processing on the audio track and some other stuff.

However, as I was scanning through frames of the film I was taken by how nice some of this old 35mm negative material looked as still images. So far I stepped through the first ¼ of the film and grabbed some of the frames for display. They are a bit grainier than they would appear in the film as I applied a touch of sharpening.

I absolutely refuse to use any of these “portrait” filter or warp-sharp filters or grain-reduction filters on this type of material. There is a beauty in the grain. Although I design and use digital imaging systems I note that more and more of the hi-resolution consumer cameras and images appearing from “Photoshop” are resulting in people looking likes blobs of plastic with a pimple or blemish not possible.

So if you want to see plastic people and colours too brilliant to be real you will have to look elsewhere for now. I am going to make a brief stop in 1962 and enjoy it for a while.

Hopefully I will pick out frames from the other three reels as well.

Synopsis

The glamour of Paris attracts Barbara, Lena and Marianne, three Swedish girls, to the city. Barbara and Lena are roommates in a run-down building. Short of funds and in debt for rent because her parents stopped her allowance when she neglected her studies, Barbara poses nude for an art class. She goes to bed with a young Frenchman who leaves her after a brief affair. Lena loses her job as a babysitter and seeks help from her friend, Marianne, who is unable to aid her. Determined to remain in Paris under any conditions, Lena accepts a job in a laundry. When she returns home in the evening she finds that Barbara has spent what little money they had on a scarf to hide a bruise on her neck that was inflicted by her lover. Furious, Lena goes for a walk, meets some jazz musicians, and goes dancing with them. This is the Paris she loves. Meanwhile, Marianne and her French lover, who have been eking out a living pasting up posters, decide to leave the city for a new life in the country. Barbara, also disillusioned, leaves Paris--as yet another Swedish girl arrives in the city of dreams.
